3RD EDITION OF SUMMER SHOAL 2019 ON FISH ETHOLOGY & WELFARE
The topic of welfare in aquaculture and fisheries is gaining momentum. More than ever, this is the time for academia and the industry to meet, dialogue and develop solutions for the welfare problems of fish. Because fish lives matter.
The third edition of the Summer Shoal will once more take place in its very special format: a circle of discussion on fish welfare, under the sky, by the sea. As stakeholder dialogue is one of our basic principles, this event is exclusive to 40 participants to allow all sitting in one big circle in the open air in order to stimulate the exchange of knowledge and ideas among scientists, professionals from industry and commerce, experts from animal welfare organisation and from relevant authorities. The participants will stay lodged in the resort and the concept is to have a "scientific retreat" dedicated to fish welfare.
This years' edition will take place in the Algarve in southern Portugal, in the lovely small resort Pedras d'el Rei at the Atlantic coast, half an hour by car east of the Faro airport. The meetings will be organised by the sea, in the heart of the Ria Formosa nature park and its marvellous barrier island
